giant seeds

Post  plantoid on 1/29/2013, 7:34 am

Just got an email for this ebay link about big seeds , do you get these sort of ebay sales elsewhere around the world

.http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/woodfieldco/m.html?item=220985088177&sspagename=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649&_trksid=p4340.l2562


Take a peek .... some of the crops could be massive (most likely like eating straw string flavoured with sawdust Laughing )

I have never got an email like that before but I took a look! There is good feedback but I only wish people would leave feedback after they grew the seed not just when they got it...

I don't think so , most big seed guys are dedicated home growerswho sell excess seed off to a specialist seedsman in the vain hope of getting back some of the vast amounts of dosh they have shelled out in their never ending quest of getting bigger and better specimen crops .

Big stuff is quite an industry over here & in Europe , especially Belgeium ( sp? ) where the climate is similar to ours .

Hey davetherave, see the post directly above yours from Dave in the UK. Very Happy You may be able to find something through that link. Also, Dave/plantoid, also in the UK may be able to offer more insight.
